As a few people have asked, I thought I’d share some notes about how I’m setting up my point-and-click interface with Playmaker.

You’ll also need the custom actions for both Pathfinding and Mecanim…

There are several things I wanted the character to do in response to a click from the user:

  • look at where the click was made
  • turn to face that point
  • walk towards that point
  • upon arrival, complete an action of some kind

It would also be nice to have a method for stopping a walk before completion and for clicked items to have their own pre-defined destinations eg. clicking on a mountain could result in walking to a balcony to look rather than all the way to the mountain…
